Two of the nation's top 2017 prospects have plans to visit Texas this week, and it could happen as early as Tuesday.
Both Four-star OT Walker Little and five-star DT Marvin Wilson told me Charlie Strong wants to have some one-on-one time with them this week. While a date has not been officially set for Wilson, Little plans to be in Austin this Tuesday.
Scout.com Analysis: Marvin Wilson
Wilson is a massive defensive line prospect who dominates at the point of attack. Possesses the strength and power to overwhelm most opponents at the high school level. Tall, long-armed, thick-trunked. Consistently gets off blocks to make plays vs. run and as a pass-rusher. Powerful bull-rusher, sometimes even when doubled. Explosion off the ball looked noticeably better on junior tape compared to sophomore film. Pursues well for such a large interior defender. Potentially scheme-versatile as even-front 3-technique DT and multi-position prospect in odd front. Can play a bit too high at times because of his height. While pursuit ability is impressive, can sometimes (understandably) get off-balance laterally. Must be ready to acclimate to a significant jump in competition going from private school football in Texas (a state ruled by public schools) to Power Five college level. Overall, one of the top prospects in Texas - and the nation - in the 2017 cycle. - Gabe Brooks
Scout.com Analysis: Walker Little
Little is an elite offensive tackle prospect who will have extensive high school starting experience once he reaches the Power Five conference level. Great size. Possesses height and length to add even more weight in college. Prototype offensive tackle build. Aggressive run-blocker who finishes his blocks. Plays through whistle. Impressive balance and foot quickness. Usually shows good knee-bend, but at times huge frame can compromise leverage/pad level. Must be ready to acclimate to a significant jump in competition going from private school football in Texas (a state ruled by public schools) to Power Five college level. Possesses very high ceiling as pass protector. Little is one of the nation's top offensive tackle prospects for the 2017 recruiting cycle. -Gabe Brooks
